It comes with a thermostat as standard, with the option of corded or cordless and programmable remote controls.

If using corn without pellets as fuel in the Quadrafire Classic Bay, the corn won't automatically reignite unless it has some wood pellets mixed in. This means it's necessary to keep the stove on.

To keep the stove running, set the thermostat to maximum. Set the stove itself to low or medium so that the thermostat doesn't get tripped.

Reducing the hopper size to the minimum for fitting the insert to a smaller fireplace will drop the burn time to 30 hrs.



Empty and clean the burn pot


Empty ash pan, clean ash from firebox, clean window glass


Clean beneath the heat exchanger, check the door latch and gasket, clean the heat exchanger and drop tube, clean the hopper.

Every Year:

Clean the blowers, the exhaust passages and the flue. Clean out the firebox.
